5.5 Million Euro Project for Molecular Machine Research

Abstract:
Operating on a molecular level is no longer just a dream for the future. A newly approved Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) of the Christian-Albrechts-Universitšt zu Kiel is working on "molecular machines". The project team will design and synthesize molecules and nanometer sized aggregates of molecules that will operate as pumps, rotors, actuators and "intelligent" materials. The German Research Foundation has approved a grant of more than EUR 5.5 million to the SFB 677 "Function by Switching" for its first four years. Spokesman of the project is Professor Rainer Herges (Chair of Organic Chemistry).
